Family Photo Time
Growing up, Taylor Marie Doleman was a creative kid with an entrepreneurial spirit. The daughter of Toni Doleman and NFL Hall of Famer Chris Doleman, Taylor followed a somewhat traditional path after graduating from high school and college. She began to think back to high school and the class that brought her joy, photography. During those days, Taylor carried a point-and-shoot to complete class assignments and take photos of friends. Capturing the interactions and emotions between people is what Taylor says provided her with a sense of purpose and passion.The idea of becoming a photographer seemed realistic, so Taylor began developing her skills and portfolio by taking college classes and photographing events, weddings, and portraits. She has also photographed several NFL Hall of Fame ceremonies. Taylor also began working for and mentored by a well-known Atlanta based photographer. In true entrepreneurial form, Taylor is offering a 10% off special for family and couples portraits. Visit her website at TaylorMariePhoto.com and use the referral code – Lifestyle Magazine.

We Love Georgia-raised Turkeys
The crew at White Oak Pastures is excited to announce that their 2018 holiday turkeys are now available for pre-sale! These birds are very special: they spend their time regenerating the soil as they scratch and peck for bugs and grubs. White Oak Pastures turkey production began in 2010 with only 500 holiday birds, which were brooded just behind the processing abattoirs. Their turkeys are Certified Non-GMO, Step 5+ in the Global Animal Partnership, Certified Humane and Animal Welfare Approved. The demand for their holiday birds has been overwhelming for the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. These birds take about 20 weeks to grow into a dressed 12-16+ lb turkey, which is much slower than the industrial turkey lifespan. In fact, commercially raised turkeys reach this same weight in about 8-10 weeks. All their of our poultry roam freely on pasture and are supplemented with a non-GMO grain mix. In November, the poultry processing abattoir will be busy getting many of these birds processed in preparation for Thanksgiving. WhiteOakPastures.com
